Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Whoopi Goldberg, STRUT is a one-hour reality series that follows five transgender models -- Laith De La Cruz, Dominique Jackson, Isis King, Ren Spriggs and Arisce Wanzer -- as they chase their passions of becoming household names in the fashion world while challenging stereotypes of gender and beauty. Supporting them every step of the way are Cecilio Asuncion and Cassandra Cass of Slay Model Management, the first exclusively transgender modeling agency. This series provides an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into the glamorous world of fashion while also revealing the realities of being a transgender model. This group of five determined models navigates everything from the fashion world and their personal lives to emotional conversations with family members. As they strive to overcome hurdles in the quest to discovering their true identity, the models are faced with owning who they are -- no matter the cost. The models are: Laith De La Cruz, a New York native, who launched his career with a monumental Barneys New York campaign photographed by Bruce Weber, making his debut as one of the first transgender male models to ever appear in a national campaign; Dominique Jackson, who has been modeling for over 20 years, appearing on the pages of prestigious publications including Vogue Espana; Isis King, who studied fashion design at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and moved to New York following graduation to become a fashion designer; Ren Spriggs, who is one of the newest models to join Slay Management and her striking looks have already captured the attention of casting directors; and Arisce Wanzer, who has graced the pages of Vogue, Vogue Italia, Forbes and Purple Magazine, and has also walked the runways during New York, Los Angeles and Miami Fashion Week.
On Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, Oxygen premiered the season finale of STRUT. In the season ender, "The Next Chapter," Ren gets a big break as the 1st trans cover girl for Spiegel Catalog, but her inexperience threatens the shoot. Laith wants to introduce Arisce to his mom. Everyone works to help Al pull off the surprise of a lifetime for Dominique.
